Misguided

Do you remember that smile, My any reason smirk that let you know everything was ok. I’m tuned in as I always was, only this time My reception is stronger. I’m everything I once was against, I’m lost in the rush. I was set free, Carried away I soon became. I see my friend with more faces than a dice. A gamble she is. I’ve grown tired, Can you imagine being young and worn out? You never truly know who’s watching, Paranoia looks out for me.

make no mistake, so many people are fake and they only want to make trouble so as to take every piece of cake from the moment you awake but really, they are frail as flake so I will never swim their lake just for eric's sake because I hate drama and that is why I 'bake'....lol....very profound royal t....I see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree....;)

Paranoia can protect our insecurites, but when we cease mistrusting ourselves the our youth emerges on any which face we choose to show ourselves, or others. Hey Royal, lets just decide to be exhibitionists, and then we will whip the watchers with willful wonder and delight. J.A.B.
